Default X windows crashes system when started with nvidia

hi,
I just recently update my RHEL 3 from update2 to update7, the latest update from Redhat.
System works fine with nv but when I installed the NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8178-pkg1.run and startx the system hangs. I have to change nvidia to nv in XF86Config to get X windows to work. Attached is nvidia-bug-report.log. Please tell me what's wrong? Thanks million.
Neil

Does this reproduce with 1.0-8762?

hi Lonni,
I meant 1.0-8762 not 1.0-8178. I copied wrong text.
System was working fine with kernel 2.4.21-15.0.4.ELsmp with 1.0-7174 installed, but the system couldn't see anything beyond 4GB RAM. I then upgraded system to 2.4.21-40.ELsmp and it was able to see beyond 4GB RAM but when I install 1.0-8762, the system crashed. I have to boot to level 1 or 3 to change "nvidia" to "nv" in XF86Config to get system load X windows.

The bug report that you attached was against 1.0-8178. Please post a bug report that captures the crash with 1.0-8762.

Thanks,
Lonni

Does updating to the latest BIOS have any impact on this problem?

Also, can you confirm that you're using a Quadro NVS280 (AGP)?

Thanks,
Lonni

According to your bug report, you're using a BIOS from June 2005. The latest BIOS on Tyan's website is from March 2006.

Default Re: X windows crashes system when started with nvidia

Hrm, i have the exact same problem with my 32 bit system. The symptoms are similar, except i am running geforce 6600 go on a lappy. Is there anything i can do to fix this? It is not a mobo/bios problem.

After i installed the latest 8762 and made the module, it would work, but on reboot, would not fire up again. Had to change to init1(ubuntu) and either rebuild the module which will work untill next boot, or go into Xorg.conf and switch it to nv. It seems to show a driver missmatch between 7174 and 8762, so something isn't being removed or changed when i installed the new driver. i re-installed 7174, but the graphics need to be at 8762 to view some of the games i have. Please help!

Hello

BIOS Updates with Tyan is simple impossible without a DOS boot floppy. That is really annoying. I would also have tried to update my BIOS but no working DOS boot floppy Images around.

krisko1c, the problem that you're mentioning is unrelated to everything else in this thread, and is a very frequently discussed Debian bug.
